Try paying close attention to those leafy, green vegetations, because they can do wonders to your home! Ready to give it a try? This article is for you.
Coming home to a house abundant with greens can do a lot of wonders to an individual’s overall well-being. We’re not just talking about ordinary garden greens; we’re referring to those green, leafy, and fresh houseplants. Houseplants are a great alternative to the usual furnishings used for interior home designs.
These nature-bestowed gifts deliver such promising rewards and benefits for homeowners that many households have invested much time, money, and effort into looking for the right indoor plants that are perfect for their needs.
Benefits of Using Houseplants as Decors
Let’s start listing indoor plants’ top benefits to any household space.
Natural Mood Enhancers
Our list-topper is the mental health payoffs that houseplants bring to their homeowners. Studies have shown that houseplants help people to relax, focus, and calm their heart rate. There is a psychological link between caring for plants. Watering plants can help lower a person’s blood pressure and ease muscle tension caused by stress.
For instance, the aroma radiating from plants like eucalyptus, lavender, or rosemary is a natural mood enhancer. Their smells are anti-stress and antiseptic and bring out mental clarity. Not to mention they can offset whatever foul odor a room has!
Plants are also effective positivity state boosters; they help increase productivity and happiness in an enclosed room. There is something to these leafy greens that exudes tranquility and joy to its onlookers. One research has shown that spending time with plants for 20 minutes is enough to make an individual feel calm and more at peace. There is also that belief that plants like the Aloe Vera can help fight off bad luck and negative vibes and that the sage has a cleansing “power” that can help rid the room aura from negative emotions.
Houseplants are also considered natural air purifiers. NASA, back in 1989, discovered the unique ability of this indoor vegetation to absorb harmful toxins in the air. For one thing, it is part of the ecological lifecycle that living creatures need oxygen to breathe, mainly from marine plants and plant-like organisms.
For these plant lifeforms to survive, they need carbon dioxide. Living creatures gives off carbon dioxide, and in return, plants exude fresh oxygen. The same theory applies to indoor plants. These plants cleanse the air from pollution and carbon dioxide and then give off that clean air necessary for homeowners. So, the more air-purifying plants, the better.
Decorating Your Space with Indoor Plants
Now that you know why people invest so much in houseplants, it’s time to start planning on the best way to maximize them aesthetically and functionally fully. Here’s what you need to know to begin interior decorating with indoor plants.
Go for Different Sizes of Plants
Contrast is the key to using plants as part of your home decorations. Try going for the “rule of three.” This classic combination of the odd number of three depicts a group of three different plants in different shapes and sizes. This rule of thumb allows the spotlight to shine on the various plants, allowing each to shine through and breaking free from the risk of a monotonous underlying tone.
Another stand-out idea is to use creative, decorative plant pots to give out a bright vibe to the room. Decorative pots are also a fantastic idea to shake off any instances of dull background decorations. Casa Z is the go-to planter and cachepot designer in the United States. Casa Z offers 3D designing for planters’ pots, setting the pace for ingenious use of technology in creating house plant decors.
With plant pots, you can choose to get creative as much as you like to match (or contrast) your house’s interior decoration.
Play Up the Vines
Need something to embellish or frame your mirror or a window? Then go for plant vines. Vine decorating is a creative and functional way to use dangling leaves as decorations for framing to add a unique Zen-like vibe to the room. Not to mention it helps to keep the leaves off the floor!
Fill Up Empty Corners
Got an empty corner? Fill it up with hanging or long-standing plants to give off that instant vibrance. Don’t just leave spaces empty. Use the tiniest corner, shelf, or vacant spots to display your green blooms.
Take Risks with Oversized Plants
Oversized plants are a great eye-catcher décor piece. They can be used as a room’s centerpiece or a corner plant that greets incomers in the doorway.
Incorporating nature into your house décor might be one of your best investments. Aside from bringing natural aesthetics into your home life, you also invite positive vibes and good mental health.
